    • No.... its not for a defendant to tell the court to dismiss a claim within a statement, denied is fine … it should state... By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief. 
    • Yes, received a letter this morning.
    • We have about 130 cases at this scam site.  Yes, that's what it is.  It's been exposed as a scam site in the national press and on national television. Of those 130 cases, in only six have MET tried court.  One was thrown out at a preliminary stage by a judge, in two cases MET discontinued when the Cagger defended, two are ongoing, and in only one case did MET actually win when the motorist stupidly didn't defend so MET won by default. So don't pay them a penny.  Mind you, you haven't helped yourself by outing the driver when there was absolutely no need to.

    • Unfortunately for me I'm going to have to go with plan B. I spoke to the manager this morning, who was very sympathetic but politely let me know that they were on rented ground and he had no control over the two bays. He promised to ring corporate to double check, and having took my number just got back to me now. He said he was correct in saying there's nothing he or anyone at Tesco could do about my situation, but as a result of my being stung for a couple of minutes, corporate agree that they needed to reassess the future of their carpark with the landlord. I guess that's some sort of victory, but I'm afraid I'm coming back to the well to ask you guys how I should word this appeal, please?

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Had an Argos card in 2005, This received today after sending statute barred letter.


Dear NM


We acknowledge that the account is statute barred and so governed by the Limitation Act 1980. Under the OFT guidelines it is accepted that legally the debt still exists but that the collection of these debts must in no way be contrary to section 40(1) of the Administration of Justice Act 1970.


Whilst we don't consider our actions have breached any law or regulatory guideline, your account has been withdrawn from our regular collections process.


If you have any queries call one of our customer advisors.



Oh how that must hurt :violin:

Nice. Keep hold of that. Cabot are known for selling the debt off, but not marking it as SB due to "admin errors".

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..



If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks
